The golden pond

koi "Alive without breath, As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking, All in mail never clinking."
~J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Just a few of the hundreds of koi we saw in the ponds of Greenbelt, the large retail complex in my Lush post from the other day.

A local restauranteur got fined here for refusing to rid these from his tanks. Invasive species in Maine.

A beautiful spot to watch the fish.

Nice. We have some in a greenhouse pond at the botanical gardens - but they are difficult to photograph for the reflection.
